Hello My Name is Coconut Love - Target ($1.92)

Lindt Hello My Name is Coconut Love - Target ($1.92)
Another product I picked up at Target ages ago and never got around to reviewing, but hey, better late than never and at least this was on clearance. (Although it really wasn't that much cheaper.) 
It's a tropical flavor, perfect for summer, and despite what all the grocery stores say it's STILL summer, so there's no better time to review it. (Well maybe when I first bought it, but that's just insanity.) Join me in me summer-ding-denial as I binge on tropical white chocolate.

(8 flavors) DumDums Summer Time Favorites - Target

DumDums Summer Time Favorites - Target 
I'm torn. Pumpkin products and spooky decorations and lining the shelves, which warms my little-gothic heart, but at the same time I can feel summer slipping through my fingers! I'm not ready for fall sweaters yet! I'll be clinging to summer for as long as I can, and I've got 250 summer themed lollipops to help fuel my delusions.

How's this for a #TBT ?

#tbt Pumpkin Spiced Milano Cookies from Target

Pumpkin Spiced Milano Cookies - Target #tbt 
At a glance this might not look like a #tbt post, but...look at the best by date. (No wait, don't look! Let's pretend we never saw that.) There's no use denying it, these are from last fall! I somewhat feel ashamed and embarrassed that it took me this long to get around to these cookies, but I'm also kind of impressed that I dug them out of my stash just in time for them to return to the shelves. I mean, they're just cookies. They can't be bad yet, right? I guess we'll find out!

Dollar Store Candy Haul

Which goodies should I review first? 

Buck Wild Honey BBQ Snack Mix - Gift but Available at Starbucks

Buck Wild Honey BBQ Snack Mix - Gift but Available at Starbucks
I was sent the snacks for free but not paid for this review.
A few months ago, the people behind Buck Wild sent me some gluten free products to review. Maybe it was because of my gluten free Aldi reviews? Whatever the reason, I'm all about free food. 
They sent over a healthy selection, but one of the products that caught my eye was this Honey BBQ snack mix. I looked like it had corn nuts in it, and I've been craving corn chips, so I threw it into my photo setup for some quick snap shots so I could dig in.

Sometimes Tipsy? Hard Ginger Ale Review

 Not Your Father's Ginger Ale - WineWorks
Last week was insanely busy, and this week is shaping up to be more of the same, so I've been doing a lot of things I wouldn't normally do in order to survive. I'm drinking coffee to keep me going during the day and now I'm having a boozy beverage as the sun goes down? Who am I? What is happening to my life?
This has actually been in my fridge for quite a while and I figured it might be a good way for me to wind down tonight before going back to the grind tomorrow, so let's see if this boozy soda is worth the extra calories!

#Meatless Monday Vegetable Curry with Vegetarian Strips

Indian Curry Vegetable Meal with Vegetarian Strips - Aldi Meatless Monday $2.99
Aldi likes to release a bunch of products all related to the traditional flavors of one area of the world. In the past we've seen them visit Greece, Italy, Mexico and Germany, but right now their latest collection is inspired by the flavors of India. 
This isn't Aldi's first collection inspired by India, but it's the first time I've seen it show up with this much variety. They're currently offering curry-based soups, Tikka Masala meal kits, cooking sauces, and various freezer meals. It's been a very VERY long week for me, and even though I like to cook homemade meals on the weekends, I caved and bought a bunch of frozen meals from Aldi instead. (They're vegetarian friendly so I can share them with my boyfriend!)
For today's #MeatlessMonday post, I heated up one of Aldi's frozen vegetarian curry meals for my boyfriend and I. It has something called "vegetarian strips" in it, which look suspiciously like tofu, so we'll see how this one pans out.
